FOSTERING RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN BUSINESS LEADERS, EDUCATORS AND SCHOOLS: DELAWARE PRINCIPAL FOR A DAY PROGRAM
By Mark DiMaio
The Delaware Principal for a Day Program recognizes a need to foster working relationships between business leaders, educators and schools. The State Chamber, through its affiliate The Partnership, Inc. created this program to provide CEOs and business leaders an opportunity to spend the day in a Delaware school carrying out the daily responsibilities of a principal. Business leaders and elected officials participate in the Program for many and varied reasons, but ultimately the goal is to build a closer connection and relationship between school, college and career. This connection provides business leaders the opportunity to meet the next generation of prospective employees and provides a firsthand look at your future workforce. Every year we receive tremendous positive feedback from our participating business leaders and we want to provide an opportunity for anyone who’s interested to participate in 2015. Last year, we had over 130 schools participate and your opportunity to sign up is now.
So far this year, more than 100 schools will open their doors to host a guest principal. Follow the Program on Facebook where participants can share their photos and stories.
